Introduction
Lake Champlain Bikeways Theme Loops

Over the years, many people have asked us, "How can my community or business benefit from Lake Champlain Bikeways?" Or questions like "What does it take to be a bicycle-friendly community or business?" and "How can we attract more cyclists to our region?" Not to mention, "What do you mean by a 'theme loop,' and how can we make one, too?"

It's these and other questions that the manual Lake Champlain Bikeways: Making It Happen begins to answer. It is designed to help communities, businesses, and organizations establish bicycle theme loops as part of the Lake Champlain Bikeways network, and intended to give you a taste of the opportunities offered through the Lake Champlain Bikeways program. This online excerpt should be enough to get you started, but you can also order the full printed booklet online. And when you're really ready to get working on building theme loops, we recommend that you order a copy of our more comprehensive technical manual, Lake Champlain Bikeways: What it Can Do for your Community and Business, by Bruce Burgess, founder and director of Bicycle Holidays, an touring company in Middlebury, Vermont.
